Description:
We are a group of families that are coming together because we are concerned about the impacts of climate change. We are learning how to build personal climate resiliency and share that knowledge as education with the general public. The climate change crisis is rapidly escalating, with devastating consequences for our planet and its inhabitants. Extreme weather events, loss of biodiversity, degrading ocean conditions, and rising sea levels are just a few examples of the challenges we face

Our goal is to form a model of a resilient and sustainable farming and food growing based community, founded in our commitment to respond and adapt to the urgent challenges of the climate crisis and its economic impact. The model will be used to provide education to individuals, families, and entire communities about the necessary resources, essential skills, and innovative technologies that promote self-sufficiency organic and regenerative food growing and other sustainable practices for humans, animals and plants. CSV Bellingham will have an emphasis on food, seed, and resource sharing networks.

Most of our group (about 5 families) do not have significant farming experience. However, we have some professional farmers in our larger climate resilience network, who are helping to advise us. One advisor is Wayne Jenkins from Synergy Gardens.

We have a commitment to build organic, sustainable, and regenerative farming practices and to seek out and hire consultants to advise us.

We are seeking 25 or more acres that our well above the flood plane and have no or. minimum of wetlands.

We could build on bare land or take over and existing Farm with all its existing buildings and equipment.

We will gladly work with conservation trusts to preserve the land in multiple ways.

Land that has already been organically farmed or regeneratively farmed would be ideal.

Because of our commitment to organic farming and gardening this LAND should not be near businesses that have toxic waste or known soil or water contamination areas.
